'Power Rangers' Fan Film Featurette Goes Behind-the-Scenes

2 March 2015 1:44 PM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Last week, producer Adi Shankar released the latest installment from his Bootleg Universe, a new short film entitled Power/Rangers. Just a few days later, it was pulled from Vimeo and YouTube after a copyright dispute with Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers creator Haim Saban and his Saban Brands company. But the short film came back online over the weekend. Today, Adi Shankar has released a behind-the-scenes video featuring director Joseph Kahn on the set, along with stars Katee Sackhoff and James Van Der Beek.

This is the fourth short film in Adi Shankar's Bootleg Universe, following The Punsher: Dirty Laundry, Venom: Truth in Journalism and last year's Judge Dredd: Superfiend. Joseph Kahn called this project a "deboot," which features characters popularized on the Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, but in a much darker and gritty film that explores their origins.

Cinemax Slots Strike Back for Summer, Reveals Details on Final Season

8 January 2015 3:13 PM, PST | TVLine.com | See recent TVLine.com news »

Holding court at the Television Critics Association winter press tour on Thursday, Cinemax threw Strike Back fans a bone by narrowing the premiere date for the delayed fourth and final season down to “summer 2015.”
